Building the Perfect Shoe Cabinet for Your Closet

If you're the type of person who has a lot of shoes, you might want to build your own shoe cabinet.

While this sounds like it's a lot of work - you'd be surprised at how easy shoe organizers can be assembled.

Even if you have a bigger plan for your shoe collection - you can easily hire a professional closet organizer to create the shoe cabinet of your dreams.

Having troubles getting your planning started..?

Here are some things to keep in mind…

How Many Pairs Do You Have?

The first thing to keep in mind when creating a shoe cabinet is the number of pairs it needs to house.

You will need to not only count the pairs you have - but also leave room for any larger pairs of shoes or those shoes that you plan to buy in the future.

It's always a good idea to overestimate the number of shoes you will need to house or to begin skimming down your collection before you build the cabinet itself.

In fact - this is one of the main reasons why homeowners hire professional designers. These pros know how to estimate for the size of these cabinets.

How Many Pairs Do You Wear Regularly?

When you want to create a unique shoe cabinet - you need to address the reality of how many pairs you will wear on a weekly basis.

If you have a job where you need to wear various outfits during the week - you might want a shoe organizer that rotates about 20 pairs of shoes at a time.

A rotating system or one that opens up to show you more pairs of shoes would be ideal. You might also want to have a color coded system of shoes - that is - shoes arranged by color to help you with matching your various outfits.

How Much Space Do You Have?

Of course - the shoe cabinet is going to have to fit in the designated space - often curtailing complicated plans for an organization system.

Look to see what kind of free space you have available and begin to note how you could best use this space. For example - if you have an additional closet in your home that's underused - this might serve as a better shoe cabinet than the bottom of your bedroom closet.

Or… if you don't have a lot of space - you can improvise by adding hanging shoe racks or stacking clear containers of shoes at the top of your closet.

A shoe cabinet is the perfect way to celebrate the many pairs of shoes you own. But in order to create a space that's just the right fit - you need to recognize a few things to achieve these goals ….

  • How many shoes you need arranged…
  • How many shoes you need immediate access to…
  • How much space you have.
